Dear Birth Mom,

Hi! I’m Nicole and I can’t thank you enough for your consideration. I’ve always wanted children of my own and feel now is the perfect time to expand my family and heart through adoption. I realize that choosing adoption for your baby is a very difficult decision, and hope that after getting to know me a little better, it will provide you with the knowledge and confidence that you are making the best decision possible for your family. I hope there is a connection, and if it feels right, I would be thrilled to meet you.

With all my love and respect,
Nicole

ABOUT ME:

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles and my family, and my family and I really took advantage of the California sun! Growing up, I had so much fun, and spent hours running around outside with my brother and friends, playing softball, swimming, playing, hanging out with my animals and just being a kid. As I grew up and headed off to college in San Diego, I always knew I would head back to the Los Angeles area to plant roots and start a family of my own.

 

People Describe me as:

  • Compassionate
  • Dedicated
  • Curious
  • Loyal
  • Responsible
  • Fun & Friendly

 

PETS:

I am an animal lover, and throughout my life have always been surrounded by the cute, cuddly, furry and occasionally the feathered! From dogs (both big and small), to cats, chickens, rabbits, ducks and a very chatty cockatoo, just to name a few. Having pets taught me compassion and responsibility when I was young, and I can’t wait to share the fun of caring for a pet with my child.

 

WHAT I WANT TO GIVE TO OUR CHILD:

  • Love & Respect
  • Safety & Security
  • Guidance & A Good Moral Compass
  • The Ability to Explore the World Through Education, Music, Art & Sports, to Find Their Own Special Talents & Passions

 

 FRIENDS & FAMILY:

My mom and dad, who have loved, supported and encouraged me all my life, live fifteen minutes from my house. They are the foundation and heart of our family and they couldn’t be more excited to meet their newest grandchild. My eldest sister and her husband have raised two amazing daughters who have pledged to be the best babysitters imaginable and shower him/her with kisses and lots of hugs. Finally, my younger brother and his wife live near the beach and can’t wait to be the cool uncle and aunt to the newest member of our family.

Additionally, I have an amazing extended family with aunts, uncles and cousins who fill every holiday and family event with lots of laughter, good food, traditions and love.

I also have a great circle of friends who I have gathered from my childhood, school days and more recently through work. We all get together as often as we can, and have supported each other through life’s ups and downs. I’ve also seen their families grow, and they are all anxious to meet the newest addition to our group.

MY HOME:

I recently purchased my first home in Pasadena, CA, which is walking distance to two community parks and a grammar school. My neighborhood is also surrounded by lots of sidewalks, allowing for lovely strolls, and close to a metro train stop for fun weekend adventures. My favorite part of living where I do is that I am just a few blocks away from the Rose Parade route. I love hosting friends and family on New Year’s Eve, then getting everyone up early to sneak a peek of the parade as it passes by down the street.

 

MY WORK:

I am lucky to love what I do and have spent the past nineteen years as a publicist in the entertainment industry. After spending 18 years at FOX, I decided to make a switch to be closer to home and now work for Disney | ABC. The company is very family friendly and supportive of working moms, and a fun benefit is I get Disneyland passes for myself and my family whenever I want! One of the things I love the most about my job is that it is always changing and I’ve been able to work on shows like “American Idol,” “Modern Family,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Teen Choice Awards,” “Oscars,” and many more.

MORE ABOUT ME:

I would describe myself as adventurous, loyal, fun, hardworking, resourceful and able to find the silver lining in every situation. I am also still a very curious person and love learning and trying new things every chance I get.

 

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS:

  • Wrapping presents on Christmas Eve with a cup of egg nog
  • A movie with a big tub of popcorn (hold the butter)
  • Hanging out with my nieces
  • Exploring new craft fairs and festivals
  • Camping at the beach
  • A tall glass of iced tea outside in summer
  • Boysenberry pie (a la mode)
  • A great concert
  • A great book
  • Taquitos

 

TRAVELING:

One of my great passions is traveling and I have had some amazing vacations all over the world. Work has also taken me all across the United States, from Hawaii to New York. I can’t wait to travel and create new adventures with my child.

THANK YOU:

Thank you for considering me as the adoptive parent of your child. I promise to love your child unconditionally as my own and give them my heart and soul completely. I want nothing more than to help them to grow into the special and unique person that we both know they can become. Should you choose, I will share their journey openly with you. They will grow up knowing that you loved him/her very much and demonstrated incredible strength and courage in choosing adoption.

Best wishes,

Nicole
